Ok so heres the deal, we are going to Walmart today (me,my SO,and our new baby girl Heidi) its our first outing as a family! Our baby was in the NICU for a week and never got the hang of breastfeeding so ive been pumping for her because I figure it doesnt matter how she gets it as long as she gets it! (Im against formula feeding her). So heres my questions: How much should I pump before enough for two feeding should do it right? And should I freeze them and go? How am I supposed to thaw them out while where gone...should I refrigerate them and use our bottle warmer on them (it would never thaw out a frozen bottle)? Or do you have any of your own advice? Where going to super walmart for groceries and my SO is the only one who drives and I totally dont trust him going alone (He loves junk food). So staying home with the baby totally isnt an option.Answer Question

I can't answer the pumping question, but you may be able to get baby to breast to make life easier. Here is a nice little gadget called a supplumental nursing system. Congrats on your formula free decision mama!
